This is the intersection of Congressman Steve Horn Way and Caring Way. It is a peaceful set of roads set back from the constant bustle of Imperial Hwy just south. I ride my bike here on my way to and from work. It is much safer than the direct route and easier on my nerves.
Today I noticed something though, a set of three ground boxes for the streets. The first was labeled "streetlights." The second was labeled "traffic signal." And I thought to myself, "What traffic signal? There is barely enough traffic to warrant the stop signs." Then I thought, "They're here for future traffic signals, when the traffic will warrant it." I hope not. I hope it never loses its peacefulness.
The third box read "fiber optic." Downey doesn't have the FIOS fiber optic network, so why do we need conduits for fiber optics?
"I will lie down and sleep in peace for you alone, oh Lord, make me dwell in safety."
~ Psalm 4:8
